Daily Photo – The Burlock Coast

Here’s a photo from the Burlock Coast restaurant at the Ritz-Carlton in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. I have a great relationship with that company and they are nice enough to let me stay for free. What a deal, eh? In exchange, I give them a bunch of photos, but it’s great because they don’t dictate what I should shoot. I just sort of roam around and find interesting things. This restaurant had so many textures and such cool lighting that it felt like the perfect place for a cool HDR.

Pittsburgh in the Night

Daily Photo – Philadelphia in the Night

Right before I took this photo, I went over to Paddy’s Pub, which you may know from the show It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. I don’t know if that pub started AFTER the show got popular or before. It didn’t look exactly the same, but it was still pretty cool and I’d recommend it!

Arriving in Silver Tip

Daily Photo – Arriving in Silver Tip

My friend invited me out to his ranch in Montana. It’s quite remote and you can either ride a horse in, which takes a bit over an hour, or you can hike in. I always choose the hike even though it takes an extra 3 or 4 hours. There’s also more excitement because we sometimes see bears! Usually, about halfway through, the wagons that have been loaded with all our luggage come rumbling by, and that’s when I took this photo.

Freedom Tower, New York City

Daily Photo – Freedom Tower, New York City

After my talk in New York City, I was invited on the roof of the Marriott in downtown to capture this photo of Freedom Tower. They have one of the best views in downtown and it was good to get up high to minimize the perspective angles that sometimes diminish the stature of skyscrapers as high as this one.

DC After a Snowstorm

Daily Photo – DC After a Snowstorm

I arrived in DC at about the same time as a giant snowstorm. It was great for me because I had most of the day free just to walk around and get photos. I didn’t have a lot of winter-gear with me, but I was able to stay out taking photos for a solid three hours before I retreated back inside to the warmth to process some photos.

Chinatown in Boston

Speaking of China…

Check out this crazy structure they are building up the side of this cliff in China. I wonder what they are building…

Daily Photo – Chinatown in Boston

Whenever I’m in a big city, I usually try to find their Chinatown to see what it’s like and what kind of food they have kicking around. If it’s a big enough city, there’s often also a Japantown and a Koreatown, each with their own kinds of foods and shops.

New York Photowalk across the Brooklyn Bridge

USA Highlights

And here’s one of my favorite videos of all time… the highlights from our USA Photowalk Tour!

Daily Photo – New York Photowalk across the Brooklyn Bridge

This was an amazing start to our USA Tour! What better place to start than NYC and on the Brooklyn Bridge? It was great to see so many people out there. We actually got into a little bit of trouble when crossing the bridge because we had such a big crowd that we shut down a lot of the biking! We didn’t think of that ahead of time… Just one more in a long series of mistakes!

The Washington Monument in a Snow Storm

Daily Photo – The Washington Monument in a Snow Storm

I went to D.C. in the winter to visit my friends at the Ritz-Carlton and the Marriott, since this is where they are based. I had an extra day and there was quite a blizzard out there! So I ran around with my camera as long as I could stand the cold to get some photos. Here is one of my favorites…

New York Skyline from the Upper West Side

Daily Photo – New York Skyline from the Upper West Side

I don’t think most people would recognize this as New York City. I know the city pretty well and I never would have guessed it in at least my first ten tries. I think the thing that makes it unique is those three really tall thin buildings that are relatively new. They stand out so far above the skyline and it throws you off a bit. If you squint a little, you can see the Empire State Building in the far distance.

Train Station at Freedom Tower, New York

Daily Photo – Train Station at Freedom Tower, New York

I had not been down to the World Trade Center area for at least a decade, so it was surprising to see how much had been built up in the area. I thought there would be a few new things, but I didn’t expect the extent of the new construction. This was one of the coolest areas that served as an entrance to the subway system.
